Submission Guidelines

Essays for consideration should be submitted at the journal's online peer-review site: Essays and inquiries can also be emailed directly to us at

Initial submissions should be carefully prepared according to accepted professional norms. They do not need to conform to the MLQ style sheet prior to acceptance. Please remember to number the pages. Essays do not usually exceed 9,000 words, including notes.

After an article is accepted for publication, we ask that it be provided in Word and prepared in accordance with the MLQ style sheet (see above). A brief abstract (100–200 words) and contributor's note (60 words or less) are also required with the final version of the article.
